Bought in an Exxon station in San Diego. Delicious, well done amber, superior for a local. Ripe tasting, hoppy, wet.

Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Clear copper color with a ruddy hue. Toffee and subdued caramel aromas and flavors. Similar to the amber lager, but spicy and dry, lacking the buttery note. Pretty good.

On the sweeter side, malty, creamy, caramel. Went down easy, but just not a favorite style to me. Tap at Universal

Poured a deep red amber color. Sweet malty aroma. I drank this brew after an endless summer light, so it had a little punch compaired to that.

This is another beer tasted at the Karl Strauss Brewery and resturant in Carlsbad. It was not my favorite. There was a red color with modest head. The taste was of spices but some sweetness. They claim suble taste of dates and toffee. I could not confirm those flavors.
